The automated pop up has started to appear and stay on screen covering the link it was advising was ok and wont disappear when i move the mouse away from the area.
therefore if i am not intending to see if a site is ok and just scrolling the screen and my mouse pointer accidentally passes over an advisor indicator bubble
it still pops up and wont go away unless i refresh the current chorme window
its not just me as my mums pc which is also under my account it happens on hers now too!
so if we are on facebook it is a pain in the butt!
it does this now n again and it really does become a blooming nuisance! so much so now i am having to ask why?
is it google chrome or an update from McAfee?
funnily enough today its stopped so someone has done something to correct it
on chrome searches its fine Though now on facebook the popup is popping in a seemingly random place on screen sometimes nowhere near the indicator the mouse drags over.
each post with an indicator the pop up appears in the the same spot for that post. sometimes is half off the bottom of the screen! (see next brackets comment)
take the mouse away it disappears... move the mouse back and the pop up appears in the same place.
(think ive worked it out that the further down the page your looking at posts on the further away the pop up appears so after a while of scrolling posts the pop up appears so far south of the post its is off screen so looks like there is not one)
but it removes itself as soon as the mouse moves away form the site indicator. so i am not bothered. Im happy its fixed
if it happens again i will come back to you
Yes, it's the SiteAdvisor pop-up box issue (again) and I'm seeing it in Chrome. As soon as the cursor passes over one of the SiteAdvisor rating marks on a page the popup box appears with a site summary - and then it sticks and can't be dismissed. It doesn't time out, moving the cursor so as to make it lose focus doesn't work, clicking on the X to close it doesn't work. It really is very annoying and it gets in the way.
Makes me wonder if it is (Browser Specific) ? As I have not seen such in Internet Explorer 11. Running Version/Build 18.104.22.168. Perhaps a Topic for Discussion next week?
